as a bellwether, russ feingold really has not been in danger before except when he first ran for senate. >> well, what's going on in wisconsin is what's really going on in most of the upper midwest. that is that while we haven't necessarily hit quite as high unemployment rates as some other parts of the country, the upper midwest has suffered from really severe deindustrializatio we have lost a lot of our best jobs in states like wisconsin, minnesota, illinois, indiana, ohio, michigan. so there's a great deal of discomfort. and that has ricochetted hard against the democrats. there's simply no question that president obama came to milwaukee on monday, labor day, because he thinks that this is really one of the places where the 2010 election cycle will be decided. obama was in milwaukee just two weeks ago. so he's going to make it just a regular stop. the problem or the great challenges, that what people are concerned about is that unemployment rate. and, frankly, the deindustrialization. and very little of what president obama said yeed will insre quick confidence about bringing those unemployme
making the pitch for why voters should vote for them. let's start with the incumbent russ feingold. his numbers have not been good as of late. we tested one of the ads airing the most in wisconsin. red line represents republicans, green line democrats. the higher the lines the more favorable the reaction. let's take a look. >> fair trade agreements letting -- unfair trade agreements letting wall street run wild i voted them, you warned me they cost wisconsin jobs that's what happened. we've to move forward. together with wisconsin business leaders, i passed parts of my initiative put people back to work. why i proposed cutting taxes for all businesses committed to hiring more workers. i'm russ feingold and i support this message. we need to move forward together. >> what is happening right now is that all these candidates are speaking to camera they are all sounding pro business. you can't tell who is the republican and who is the democrat. >> greta: he doesn't say except everybody knows russ feingold in wisconsin. >> yes he sounds like co-be a moderate republican. we wanted to activity
. and russ feingold, the senator who is on the ballot this year, this is a state that has not sent anything but a democratic senator to washington since its first -- since it first sent feingold in 1992. but all of a sudden russ feingold finds himself in the race of his life. so this state that democrats thought was going to be their insurance policy is really turning into a bell weather of how bad it is going to be for them in november. and there are two other states that are also like that. washington state and california. again, these are democrats who barbara boxer and murray, who everybody thought would be their insurance and now they're in races that are too close to call. gwen: if you're president obama and you fly to wisconsin or washington state or any of these states which are suddenly in flux, do the incumbents greet you at the airport or find a way to be someplace else in the northern part of the state? >> in fact, in wisconsin russ feingold was not there to greet the president, although he says he will be there the next time if it's possible. but his problem is much, as he's be
a real battle. that's russ feingold. look, russ feingold did not support the surge in afghanistan. he did not support the usa patriot act. he didn't support the financial reform package of the white house because he said it didn't go far enough. these are the issues that people care about all over this country. i wouldn't just say it's progressives. this is what president obama has to deal with. it's not just the rhetoric and energy he has when he goes to a young voter rally. it's about his record and that's what people are measuring him against. >> but the question is, would you rather he lose? russ feingold? i mean, russ feingold, you say, stands up for things that lots of liberals believe in, but he could get booted out of office rit now. >> i think what he's up against is a man who never did serve in office, ron johnson. business executive, he's dominating the airwaves. self-financed campaign. it's not about would we rather he lose. russ feingold, who's been extremely popular in this land of bob la folet, right, who was senator, who was governor, extremely progressive. you have the la
it appears that left wing senator russ feingold's seat in jeopardy. challenger johnson opened up an eight point lead in that race in colorado bennett trails buck by four points. in illinois the race to fill barack obama's former seat is neck-and-neck. kirk leading democrat giannoulias by two points. in a stunning turn of events in washington state, democratic senator murray's seat is in play for the gop. businessman rossi trailing murray by a single point in that race. in ohio former bush cabinet member and congressman port man running from lt. fischer and leads by 13 point margin. to help us break down the latest polls kate obenshain and occidental college liberal professor caroline helmund is with us. caroline, feingold doesn't want to be seen with the president, twice. he's down by eight points. patty murder very in trouble. barbara boxer is in trouble. kirsten jill ground is in trouble. blumenthal is in trouble. i showed the -- polls -- gillibrand is in trouble. blumenthal is in trouble this is your party, the obama agenda they don't want to be seen with the president, why? >> well, s
of your screen, has an edge over long-time democratic senator russ feingold. how does he explain the inroads he's making in that blue state? we'll talk about that live coming up next. >> the health care bill shows you exactly how out of touch senator feingold has become. we told him to vote no on the health care bill, but he voted yes. he put his liberal agenda and partisan washington politics ahead of the express wishes of the voters of wisconsin. now, we are saddled with a bill that i believe is the greatest single assault on our freedom in my lifetime. martha: let's get a check on the markets this morning, just opened about 15 minutes ago. we got a little bit of unwelcomed news on the jobs front, unemployment claims rose for the first time in five weeks. we had seen a little downtrend happening. whether this is an anomaly or not, we don't know, but up 12,000, to 465 thoufpl that's not a great number. and it's down 65 points now, the dow jones industrial average, 10673, trading in a range, really, for the past couple of months. we'll keep an eye on the action on wall street, l
lives. seems like the less the outsider knows the better shot they have at one winning. russ feingold, folks we need to make sure he stays in washington. he'll be in the battleground coming up. >>> all that, plus a massive brawl breaks out on the ballpark field. a trapped miners, they make a crazy request. and a burning oil platform in the gulf. details coming up in the next half hour on "the ed show." stay with us. you're watching msnbc. ♪ [ male announcer ] ever have morning pain slow you down? introducing bayer am, an extra strength pain reliever with alertness aid to fight fatigue. so get up and get goin'! with new bayer am. the morning pain reliever. so why are over a thousand people a day switching to chevrolet? room for eight and allorts of space behind the third row. they just thought of everything. it just feels like a really solid car. that should come in handy. it's the chevrolet summer event and anyone can get the traverse they want. nah-uh... this one's mine. get 0% apr for 60 months on the 2010 traverse with an average finance savings of around fifty seven hundred. the
in the senate. president obama will be in wisconsin at a democratic rally to try to help russ feingold. although he will not be here. our latest poll shows that russ feingold is trailing russ johnson who owns a plastic company. feingold has 44%, johnston 52%. feingold is a three-term senator elected in 2004 by an 11 point margin. the president is trying to help him and the first lady will be there campaigning for feingold in october. take a look at what wisconsin voters think about the candidates on the issues. 47% think feingold is too liberal. 45% think johnson is too conservative. feingold 41%, half of voters think johnson is about right on the issues likely helping him at the polls. ken buck is leading michael bennett, 47-43%. that's a state our polling showed was the angriest about how the federal government its work -- is working. 53% want to repeal the president's healthcare law. 49% of colvoters say they have hurt the state's economy. finally, to president obama's old senate seat in illinois. both candidates have had ethical issues and questions raised about them. the democrat giannoulia
in the presidential campaign and get them to the polls again. >> russ feingold facing a challenger. senator feingold was not expected to go to the event tonight. there were reports he wasn't going to go to the event, university of wisconsin in madison, i think it's his alma mater. he did come to tonight's rally. any idea what changed there? >> from what i heard, it was never a matter of trying to duck the president. russ feingold is one of the most dedicated progressives in congress. if anything he's critical from the so-called left of the spectrum. he had conflicts with the senate that cleared up and he ended up at the speech. far more common is when conservative democrats are distancing themselves from obama. as you see with people like representative chet edwards who is floated to be obama's vice president by nancy pelosi during the campaign and is now up with an advertisement in which he touts his work against president obama and nancy pelosi herself. with people like russ feingold, i don't think there's any meaningful distance trying to create there. >> a vigorous democratic party would punish
of republican problems. he has a better environment this year. wisconsin, russ feingold is defending. he's got a primary september 14th. ron johnson looks to be the most likely republican to win that race. and, of course, nevada senate majority leader harry reid trying to hold off sharron angle, also a tea partier supporter. what strikes you about these races? >> this is a class of democratic incumbents that never had a really, really difficult year. and they live charmed lives. take barbara boxer, for example. she's always been able to win by being a social, cultural liberal environmentalist and all that. and which fits california very well. but in a really, really tough economy, she's having a hard time sort of pivoting away from that traditional democratic message. russ feingold, his opponent was totally unknown in wisconsin, was totally unknown three or four months ago. but he's a self-funder. he's never run for anything before so he doesn't have a baggage of legislative voting record or anything like that. democrats are having a hard time getting a grip on him and tearing him down because
, they need to take seat now held by democrat russ feingold of the state of wisconsin. look at this right now. 51% to 45%, feingold is losing. both of these candidates are holding their base. look at in tdependents. in the middle of the electorate. i was looking at new pennsylvania numbers today. you look at the colorado numbers across the country. this is a dynamic that is helping republicans. >> we've seen this all over the country. it goes back 18 months. resurgeant polling first started in april 2009 showing how they were looking more like republicans than democrats. but you'd see it in state after state after state. these are stunning numbers from wisconsin. but it's driven by the independents who are lining up with republicans this year. >> what makes it very interesting is there's a little bit of a role reversal. when feingold first ran, he was the outsider. he was the nobody. he was the guy who was going to go to washington and teach them some lessons. >> back when i first ran for the senate, i said i would shoot straight, be independent, and fight for wisconsin. not much has changed
, russ feingold is defending. he's got a primary september 14th. ron johnson looks to be the most republican to win that race and of course nevada senate majority leader harry reid trying to hold off sharron angle. what strikes but these races? >> this is a class of democratic incumbents that never had a really, really difficult year. and they live charmed lives. take barbara boxer for example. she's always won by being a liberal. that fits california very well. in a really, really tough economy, she's having a hard time sort of pivoting away from that traditional democratic message. russ feingold, his opponent was unknown in wisconsin three or four months ago. he's a self-funder. he's never run for anything before. he doesn't have a baggage of legislative voting record or anything like that. democrats are having a hard time getting a grip on him and tearing him down because he doesn't have a record. >> the president goes to milwaukee to talk about the economy tomorrow. who won't be there? russ feingold. asset or liability? how does obama work on the campaign trail this year? >> o
, because those seats which nobody thought are in play are now in play. >> sean: russ feingold. the governor -- the president goes to wisconsin where is feingold? he doesn't want to be near him. bennet, doesn't want to be near him. georgia don't want to be near him. bill white didn't show up to the speech in texas. >> there is not a single democrat in the united states of america who is defending the stimulus or obamacare who is running for office. they are all running away from it. what i'm telling republican candidates, you don't have to say this guy is a big democratic liberal spender who will grow government and the deficit. just say he voted for the stimulus. >> sean: there's a 20 point gap in enthusiasm and intensity in favor of the republicans, massi. gallup poll the best numbers republicans have had since 1942. 2/3 of americans think america is in decline under obama is there anything you can see or foresee that shows a path to the democrats making a recovery? >> there's only one way the republicans can help the democrats now to aim too low. if we aim at the eight senate seats but no
. this is a democratic race. russ feingold facing a surprisingly strong challenge what do we expect? what is the latest today? >> today is kind of the storm before the storm. ron johnson, a wealthy businessman from oshkosh will win the republican nomination. the race has been ron johnson versus russ feingold for some time. the economy in wisconsin has not worked out well, and though feingold has always run as an outsider, he has been in the senate since 1992. that's 18 years. ron johnson never ran for office before, he has a lot of commercials painting himself as an outsider and feingold as an inside this is one democrats are worried about privately, more so than california, washington. i think wisconsin may be bumping up to a second tier because democrats are concerned. >> and then let's talk about washington, d.c. of course a big democratic primary with mayor fenty, i was talking to melody barnes about that. he may lose the mayoral election today. there were questions today on air force one to the president's spokesman asking why he didn't campaign for mayor fenty. mayor fenty made national headlines
